Nikon SB-900 Foot: Size 16 EEEE

The new Nikon SB-900 Speedlights are dropping into stock pretty much everywhere, albeit on allocation.

But before you buy, you might want to check this thread for a running update on what the flash shoes the newly designed foot will -- and won't -- fit. Please feel free to add to this list if you find out anything first hand.

And remember that they do ship with an AS-21 foot, which can be swapped out if your system is 1/4 x 20-based. But mind that plastic thread if you are swapping out frequently.

Just watching your DVDs right now David. And am thinking about pulling the trigger on a SB-900 to go with the two SB-600s I already have. Infectious, indeed!

Can someone photoshop a couple Sb-900's into his hands?

Everybody laughing but, at version SB1300, the 'so smart' people from NIKON growing what suppose to be portable will announce: "... you just need to have a Vagabond II to use our brand new $2,850.00 model! Buy right now yours!"

Off topic: Any plans to discuss portable softboxes? Softboxes vs. umbrellas?

Yea, the plastic threaded 1/4-20 hole on the AS-21 stand is lame and cheap considering the $500 price of the SB-900.

So add a metal threaded insert like this (or there are others on the market).....

Available at most any decent hobby or radio control store. Drill out the hole and install the insert.

This may be off topic. I've read through Lighting 101, and I see that you favor manual flash. Where do the SB-800 and SB-900 fit into that world? Isn't it 200 times better to buy cheap, powerful Vivtars?

I don't know whether you get into this later on, but I am somewhat confused as to whether I should even bother learning about Nikon CLS. (I have an SB-800, which I understand can be fired remotely in TTL mode by most current Nikon DSLR's that have a flash.)
